Attendance is limited to fifteen to keep the focus on interaction. Most of our meetings use a case-centered framework where attendees become the Board. And the Board must wrestle with the dilemmas in the case.
Discussions are turned into podcasts and are available on boardoptions.com.
LIGHT REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED.
